2017 Overnight Host Applications
Apply here!
On Saturday, February 11th, 2017, UCSD's HMP3 is hosting the Medical Education for Diverse Students (MEDS) Conference at the Telemedicine Building!
This conference is designed for students that are interested in entering the medical and pharmaceutical fields. We are aware of the need of professionals from diverse backgrounds in the healthcare system, who can identify with an even more diverse group of patients. Therefore, MEDS was created to close the disparities seen in both medical education and healthcare. Most importantly, MEDS now exists to serve the students - to encourage, educate and empower students on their road to a career in health.
MEDS is an all-day conference, where students will get to choose from diverse workshops and activities. Students will experience hands-on activities (such as suture clinic, simulation labs), in addition to workshops that will help students get the information they need to get into Medical/Pharmacy school.
